Burgundy is one of my longtime favorite colors to wear. It compliments my dark hair and skin tone and I will almost always fetch a compliment while wearing this color. For me, burgundy is one of those “feel good” colors. I’m sure you have one of those….a color that just makes you feel your best. It’s usually a color you start seeing around this time of the year. However, it really seems to be a color that is dominating this year in both fashion and home decor. I love when those two world collide. I couldn’t be happier to give this color the recognition it deserves. So let’s celebrate the allure of burgundy…






I have mentioned before that my favorite brand of lipstick is by Yves St. Laurent. I couldn’t publish a post without my sharing my favorite lipstick color at the moment. I am not a fan of the name (#54 prune avenue) but the color is beautiful. favorite-lipstick-of-reviving-charm-ysl-54-prune-avenue

By the way, you may have noticed that I made some subtle updates to my site. One of them includes adding a new category of topics that is called “Series: Color Stories”. I get a lot of compliments on my posts dedicated to color so I thought I would make it easier for you to find these posts in one  dedicated spot. You can still find them in the “all posts” category. And of course, if you choose to follow along (and hope you do), you will always be notified of the latest posts. Thanks for visiting Reviving Charm! Have a great weekend.

    I have always loved the color burgundy. In fact, our family room was “classic burgundy” for nearly 10 years. I eventually tired of it but it was a warm and rich color and I still see pictures of the room when it was painted that color and sort of long for it. I can imagine how lovely the color looks on you if you have dark hair.
    Enjoy the weekend.

    You have made me rethink Burgundy. I used it heavily in my very first home, back in the late 70’s when it was in fashion. When it faded from fashion and I redecorated I was so happy to be gone with it. I even remember thinking how foolish I was to love it. Funny how things come full circle, as you’ve shown us some stunning photos of burgundy which have given me a renewed appreciation for it. I may just use it in my next cabin renovation. Have a great weekend!
